volume. An article on the comparative cost of government in England and in this country affords results which will probably be new to most of our readers. The obituary record, the lists of officers under the National and State governments, the register of colleges and of the theological, law, and medical schools, and the other ordinary articles of the work, will be found as full and accurate as in former years.

The thanks of the editor are particularly due to the Hon. A, C. Flagg, Hon. E. R. Potter, Hon. David G. Burnett, Digby V. Bell, Esq., Joseph T. Thomas, Esq., Thomas H. Dewitt, Esq., Edward T. Tayloe, Esq., and many other contributors and correspondents, to whom the work is indebted for a great part of its value. A continuance of their favors is respectfully solicited. A work embracing such a multitude of facts must necessarily contain some errors; persons who detect any are earnestly requested to communicate them to the editor. It is a matter of some public interest that a periodical which circulates so widely both in Europe and America, and which is so universally trusted as a manual for reference, should be rendered as accurate as possible; and this end can be obtained only by the coöperation of many individuals. Communications may be addressed to the “Editor of the American Almanac, Boston." Boston, Mass.,

October 1, 1846.
